The Osler Institute

Excellence in Continuing Medical Education

Obstetrics and Gynecology

“…I believe it is a ‘great course’”  *  “I feel [the course] helped me pass.”  *

The Osler Institute has over thirty years of experience in preparing physicians for their board examinations. We can help you today.
A survey of Osler participants shows significantly higher pass rates for Osler students compared with those who did not take our course.
The difference in pass rates is difficult to explain away by self-selection in attendance over-representing those who would have passed without taking the Osler course.

Exam pass % for: Written Oral
Osler Participants 91% 96%
Candidates without an Osler review 68% 72%

“Osler gives … unfair advantage” said a Board Trustee. “He’s wrong and right,” reported an Osler participant who heard the trustee’s comment. “The course does give candidates an advantage – but it’s not unfair.” This student had failed his boards before taking the Osler course but told us that he passed easily after doing the course. “This time didn’t even feel like an exam. It was like having a discussion with a colleague.”

The Osler course can work for you too.
